Every year during the holy month of Ramadan, Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) launches an annual charity and humanitarian campaign.

It is a bridge of mercy between those with kind and benevolent hearts on the one hand, and the needy, the poor, the displaced, and the homeless everywhere on the other. 

Inspired by our noble Islamic teachings and Qatar Red Crescent’s humanitarian message, this year’s campaign is titled “A Call for Mercy”.

Mercifulness is what touches your heart when you see a poor person, makes you feel compassionate towards them and motivates you to give as much as you can to make their life a better one, highlighted Ibrahim Abdullah Al-Maliki, Chief Executive Director of QRCS.

This year’s drive covers a slew of humanitarian projects, worth QR48 million, in as many as 22 countries.

The drive will see 18 Ramadan Iftar projects taking place in 11 countries throughout the blessed month of Ramadan.

Dr. Mohamed Salah Ibrahim, Executive Director of Relief and International Development said, “First, there are Ramadan-bound projects of Iftar meals, food vouchers, Zakat-ul-Fitr, and Eid clothing. These projects will be implemented in Qatar, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, Palestine, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Sudan, Somalia, and the Central African Republic,”

A total of 119 relief and development projects will be carried out in 22 countries, covering health care, shelter, water and sanitation, livelihood, and education.
